Compliance Program Design and Implementation
With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all healthcare entities large and small must implement the provisions of an effective compliance program. However, designing and implementing a compliance program can be difficult for smaller organizations such as nursing homes, home health agencies, and hospices. Those that lack the resources and the expertise to incorporate all of the compliance program elements recommended by the Office of Inspector General (OIG), should engage a knowledgeable healthcare compliance firm to help establish an effective program and avoid the consequences of non-compliance.

Experience Matters: Designing Your Corporate Compliance Program
Strategic Management can help any size institution implement an effective compliance program at a reasonable cost. No consulting firm in the country has more experience than Strategic Management in designing, developing and implementing compliance programs in the healthcare industry. Strategic Management has been building corporate compliance programs that address the seven standard elements outlined by the Federal Sentencing Commission since 1992, five years before the OIG began issuing their compliance guidance documents. Since then, hundreds of clients benefited from our services developing first class corporate compliance ranging from hospitals to SNFs, DME suppliers, home health agencies, hospices and physician practices.
The programs developed and implemented by Strategic Management are superior because of our first-hand knowledge and understanding of the Federal government. We offer the perspective of consultants with decades of experience in healthcare compliance. Many of our consultants are former executives from the OIG, FBI, and CMS, who have had “hands on” experience in managing the oversight functions related to provider operations, including our CEO who served as Inspector General for eleven years.
Top notch technical assistance services are a hallmark of our firm due to the cadre of individuals whose backgrounds include the fields of audit, law, finance and economics, evaluation, program analysis, and investigations. The collective experience of the team translates into quick, efficient and effective compliance solutions.
Understanding Your Facility’s Needs
When establishing a compliance program, Strategic Management focuses on designing and tailoring compliance program elements to fit with the unique structure, operation, and culture of the health care entity to:
- reduce risks and vulnerabilities for the organization, directors, and officers
- reduce the likelihood of an unwanted act or event that could give rise to a liability
- enable quick and effective corrective action, if unwanted events occur
Critical success factors we pay attention to are:
- Involving the client in all phases of the project
- Providing the greatest level of comfort in knowing that the chances of suffering major losses from fraud and abuse or various “whistleblower” actions have been substantially reduced
- Promoting a stellar reputation of quality health care
In short, regardless of the size of your institution, Strategic Management can provide expert advice in the design and operation of an effective Compliance Program at a reasonable cost.
